Wistful Leads 2014 Lord Mayor’s Cup Odds

After two close calls in her two most recent runs, John O’Shea’s in-form mare Wistful has opened narrow favourite to end the frustration and finally beat them home in the Lord Mayor’s Cup 2014 this weekend.

The Tiger Hill four-year-old is one of 13 hopefuls lining up in this Saturday’s $125,000 Group 3 Programmed Property Services Lord Mayor’s Cup (1615m) at Doomben Racecourse, and after a gun gate four draw she’s also the top fancy.

Due to be ridden by regular jockey Kerrin McEvoy Wistful pays $4 as the early Lord Mayor’s Cup betting market mover.

Two back she ran second to Destiny’s Kiss over 1600m at Warwick Farm on Anzac Day and then ran second again, this time behind Leebaz who went on to run second to Streama in the Doomben Cup, in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) on May 3.

She’s now had three weeks between runs, comes off a good run behind a very good horse and should relish another start over the mile here.

Hot on Wistful’s heels in the Lord Mayor’s Cup odds at $4.20 is then Kiwi raider Historian drawn in gate six.

Gary Alton’s Choisir six-year-old comes off some decent New Zealand form this autumn following a top summer that finished with a Group 1 Zabeel Classic (2000m) victory on Boxing Day.

Also running second in the Group 1 New Zealand Stakes over the same track (Ellerslie) and distance (2000m) on March 8 behind Silent Achiever, who went on to win a trio of autumn Group 1s in Australia this season trumping that form.

It’s a tight market with three other single figure chances to win with Angel Of Mercy ($5.50) in gate three, the rails-drawn Cameo ($6.50) and Loaded ($8.50) out in the car park with barrier 13 to overcome.

The Gerald Ryan-trained Angel Of Mercy is looking to bounce back after two eighth place finishes, most recently beaten five lengths by Streama in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) last weekend giving them just a seven day turnaround to reverse that form.

Darley-owned Cameo then represents trainer John O’Shea having improved on a 13th in the Darley Crown on Hawkesbury Cup Day to beat them home, when also drawn in barrier one, in the Listed Scone Cup (1600m) last Friday.

Loaded then may be out wide but Grant Allard’s Gosford galloper is in top form most recently running third in the Scone Cup.

Other hopes at longer odds then include Hugh Bowman’s mount Rollout The Carpet ($11) out to atone for their Prime Ministers Cup 11th at the Gold Coast at the start of the mount and the Pat Carey-trained Angola ($14) racing for the first time since the Sydney Cup on April 19.
